We asked:

Dissatisfied with the per­for­mance of the Success For All read­ing pro­gram, the school board charged the admin­is­tra­tion with the task of research­ing alter­na­tive pro­grams.  Our dis­trict promised it would spend the 2008–2009 year research­ing read­ing pro­grams.  It was not clear to the audi­ence who attend­ed pre­vi­ous board meet­ings what read­ing pro­gram was even­tu­al­ly approved by the Board.  Please pro­vide us with the details of what read­ing pro­grams have been adopt­ed by the dis­trict for the 2009–2010 school year and in what ways the staff have been trained to instruct them.

The KCMSD Answer:

Dr. Covington intends to con­duct a thor­ough study of viable read­ing pro­grams this year under his watch.  He has asked his admin­is­tra­tion to con­sid­er mul­ti­ple research-based read­ing pro­grams and their imple­men­ta­tion records before mak­ing a deter­mi­na­tion about what pro­gram will be adopt­ed by the District.  He antic­i­pates that his admin­is­tra­tion will make a rec­om­men­da­tion before the start of anoth­er school year.
